What good is a new sports arena when you'll be mugged, stripped and likely beaten before you get from your car to the ticket gate? Probably by 3 entirely different criminals!
one thing i would like to know not just in regards to Detroit, but ALL cities with major sports teams. why do they always expect to be given buildings and arenas? if they can AFFORD to PAY PLAYERS MILLIONS, don't you think THEY could well afford to PAY for it THEMSELVES?

So this will bring a lot of revenue down there.
Look, nobody is going to that hell hole until the crooks and thugs are cleaned out. If the city is paying for this bogus investment then people need to be looking at who is making the money!! The kickbacks tell the story…follow the dirty money (it is dirty...same money that's been paying off city officials all along)!!
I've been to a few raves in Detroit that were very similar to that theater. Raves in Detroit are usually held in run down abandoned buildings like that theater. They make for some cool settings.

That theater looks perfect for a rave.
The Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions play in Detroit now....near the area of the proposed hockey arena.
Games are well attended there.
There are tailgate parties at the nearby Eastern Market parking lot.
The Detroit Symphony plays nearby.
Those concerts are well-attended.
The Wings now play next to the Detroit River in the downtown area....those games are usually sold out.
There is an extreme sports bike area newly built nearby.
So, someone still feels safe enough down there.
